5 Classic Album Covers Get the Old Lady "Jesus" Restoration Treatment

Inspired by that 80-year-old's botched art restoration job in Spain, this is rock album art tailored to her unique tastes

A well-meaning but woefully under-qualified 80-year-old woman recently destroyed a 100-year-old work of art from Elias Garcia Martinez when she tried to restore the dilapidated portrait of Jesus. But her disastrous touch-up job has proved a major inspiration to artists across the Internet who are recasting other classic paintings to fit her strange vision of the human face (which makes Christ look like a monkey making an o-face). 

But why limit her creative vision to the traditional art world? After all, the cover photo of John Lennon's Imagine could use a little touching up, right? It looks so terribly washed out! It must have just flaked away over the last 40 years, I suppose.... So, in tribute to the world of rock album art and an elderly Spanish lady with a simian-like style, I've taken five classic album covers and restored them at long last!

John Lennon's Imagine, Restored

Duran Duran's Rio, Restored

Oh what is this glorious moment we caught on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon?" During his intense staredown with Jimmy Fallon, 30STM's frontman, Jared Leto, flash us a quick shirtless glance. Also, during his time hangin' with Jimmy he grabs a quick shave! What a snazzy guy.
